About De Damhuis

Situated only an hour’s drive from Pretoria and 29 km from Bela-Bela, De Damhuis offers a unique getaway for the eco-friendly orientated nature lover.

The self-catering unit consists of two bedrooms, one shared bathroom, a fully serviced open-plan kitchen and a dining area. The braai area is shaded by large Acacia trees, and overlooking the dam will be the perfect ending to a day exploring the bush trails where wildlife enthusiast may spot several of our antelope species such as kudu, duiker and steenbok, wild boars and bush pig which roam the fenceless camp.

The Damhuis is truly a “green” retreat boasting its own solar panelled electricity supply and gas for cooking and warm water.

Activities at De Damhuis include
Fishing – Carb, barbell and Kurper
Bird watching
Or for the more laid back visitor, stargazing around the bonfire pit or entertaining on the large stoep, with its big table, perfect for al fresco dining.

Please inform us in advance if you require a camping cot and baby bath.
We do allow swimming in the dam, but for your own safety please do not dive into the dam.

This is a farm and we love the rain. Although great care is taken to maintain the road, we cannot control the elements. If your car does get stuck, please feel free to contact us. We will come and pull your car out with one of our tractors.

Please note we do supply the following:
- Braai wood for 2 nights
- 1 L Milk
- Coffee, Sugar & Tea
- Toilet paper (2 rolls)
- Dishwashing liquid and cloths

At an additional fee we can provide extra wood.

The unit is serviced prior to your arrival and on day 3 of your stay. If you should require additional cleaning or linen change, please arrange so with us at least a day in advance. Please not that there be a fee for additional cleaning.

You can also find Bela-Bela only 29 km away with numerous activities and restaurants on offer.

Romantic: Die Damhuis offers a private setting for a romantic retreat away from the busy tourist areas.

      Ultimate place to relax and enjoy a quiet moment from the hassle and buzz of the city life. Very charming with all the basic necessities catered for. Very clean, cosy with lot's of farm house character. Beautiful for nature enthusiasts.

      The lovely house is secluded in a relaxing setting. Really a place where you can sit and forget the hustle and bustle of the City. If you want to do nothing and just relax. This is the place for you.

      We loved the peace,quietness & the eco friendly house.What needs improvement is the cold shower because the water gets hot for a short period then gets cold again. Think the place needs fumigation prior to visitors as we encountered spiders & mice
